Now this something that might change the way the #wheel industry goes forward with materials & design. Recently Ford released it’s new Mustang Shelby GT350R which will come standard with carbon fibre #wheels which it developed with @carbonrev an Australian company. The wheel weighs as little as 18lb or 8.16kg as compared to the aluminium wheel which weighs in at 33b or 14.97kg. With an overall weight reduction of 60lb or 27kg of unsprung weight there has been an significant improvement in both braking & acceleration performance. What will be interesting to see is if having carbon fibre wheels on a car that isn’t a hyper car like a #Koenigsegg will change the aftermarket wheel industry & whether more people will considering purchasing carbon fibre wheels. Do you think carbon fibre will make it’s way into the main stream wheel market?
